WPA3 Wi-Fi protocol aims to improve security in 2018

WPA3 Wi-Fi protocol aims to improve security in 2018

Because the Wi-Fi Protected Alliance must certify hardware before it can use the WPA3 protocol, it could take several months before companies can support the new security protocol.

While WPA2 has been widely successful, is still being developed, and will continue to be deployed in future devices, WPA3 is going to bring new protections and features. The Wi-Fi Alliance has certified more than 35,000 Wi-Fi products since the turn of the millennium.

The news was announced by The Wi-Fi Alliance, comprised of tech corporations such as Intel, Microsoft and Qualcomm among others, with WPA3 boasting four new features to enhance security protection and accessibility for both personal and enterprise networks. WPA2 uses the four-way handshake to authenticate data exchange by facilitating the process of creating encryption keys. Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WPA3) has actually been around for quite some time, but now might finally be coming into play on upcoming routers. The new WPA2 testing upgrades will reduce vulnerabilities caused by network misconfiguration and use centralized authentication services to safeguard managed networks. WPA3 will adhere to the security demands of modern devices including Internet of Things (IoT) and connected medical devices. They will include features like improved protection when users choose weak passwords and improved security setup on devices with limited or no interface screens.

In addition, there will be a 192-bit security suite, consistent with the the Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Suite from the Committee on National Security Systems, for Wi-Fi users with high security requirements, such as government organizations and businesses. IT decision-makers should consider the imminent introduction of WPA3 as an important development in an evolving security landscape.

WPA3 improvements also include protection for users who choose weak passwords and individualized data encryption on open networks, as it should strengthen privacy and provide nearly as much security as a home network.

It's too easy for anyone within range of the network to kick a user off with a DEAUTH attack without sending a significant amount of information to the network, which makes it hard to detect. The protocol is expected to emerge later this year.
